Whats that all about :?

Yorks area... the two main ones are Leaping Lizards in York and Snakes n Adders in Leeds. Both have very good reputations and I have bought several things from the guys at Leaping Lizards, all of which were cracking animals.

I think charles's stock is a little on the expensive side but then thats shop prices for you! Bit the same everywhere after overheads etc. His stuff is good though and he has a large selection.

Through personal experience I would recommend LL as I havent bought from Charles. If you want to know anymore just PM but i cant think of anything else off the top of my head.

Hull Pets and Gardens on Bev Rd in Hull are quite good. Very cheap too! There is another one down the same road which I wont name but would advise you NOT to use unless you dont mind buying ill reptiles (Speaking from personal experience having bought a very ill reptile from them which died!)

leaping lizards is very very good, two of my boas have come from them! very friendly and helpful, andy the owner knows his stuff and has some nice specimens in ;-) and the collection is growing all the time!

ive also dealt with snakes and adders, thats where my third boa came from, once again never had any problems with her and the price i paid for her was very reasonable!

both shops are good but offer different morphs and species so not alot of the stock is duplicated! it all depends on what you are after but due to having more experience with leaping lizards i would have to recommend them over snakes n adders
